Arigato AR- T story
The Arigato AR- T table lamp is created in the spirit of respect and gestures towards fellow humans. The simple statement behind the Arigato is to materialize a humble human gesture of gratitude through the design of an everyday object. In Asian cultures the gesture of bowing is used to greet someone and express your respect. The deeper or longer you bow the greater your respect is for that person. The Arigato lamp symbolizes this gesture and creates an interesting dynamic between the person and the object. The name of this lamp refers to the Japanese word for "thank you". The Arigato table lamp is made of steel tube body, the aluminium shade and the finish in matte black powder. The Arigato Collection consists of table, floor, wall and ceiling lamps.
Brand & Designer
“We had an idea. How about if we don’t let anything to a chance and involve ourselves in development of our products from the drawing board to the moment we ship it to our clients? The result is products that we fully stand behind. Products that go trough our hands every step of the way. Today we are proud to be part of peoples living and working spaces – homes, offices, hotels, bars… We’d love to share this idea with you. ” - Grupa Products
The Studio Grupa is well-known Croatian design trio consisting of Tihana Taraba, Ivana Pavic and Filip Despot. They have presented several products over the last few years, presenting exceptionally good design with reasonable prices, thus creating original yet affordable designer products.
Grupa named their series of lamps ILI-ILI, this (ili) or that (ili), which brings a completely new concept of the DIY approach to the Croatian lighting-fixtures market, i.e. design hanging fixtures, considering that their project enables the buyer to mix and match both shapes and colors. The designers created a concept based on six fundamental modular elements, different dimensions and diameters that can be mutually paired and combined, thus providing unlimited possibilities. This innovative approach towards the flexibility of the product and one’s own choice, along with the constant possibility of upgrading or changing, conceptually aims at a wide spectrum of application and provides the user with a product that’s all but run-of-the-mill and boring.
